1 cup peeled, thinly sliced ginger
3 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 cups club soda
1 teaspoon lime juice
In a covered saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
Add the ginger pieces and sugar and cover.
Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for five minutes.
Remove from heat and allow it to sit for 20 minutes.
Strain the mixture and set aside the liquid.
Once it has reached room temperature, cool it in the fridge.
Although you don’t need the ginger pieces any more, you can keep them to make crystallized ginger.
Mix the ginger sugar water with two cups of cold club soda.
Add the lime juice.
Stir and serve.
